Education Headphones Care Instructions | Learning Headphones
When you buy headphones for your school, we know it is a worthwhile investment. It is important to protect this investment and make the most of each pair. This is a big challenge with essential school headphones, but there are steps you can take to avoid accidental damage or breakage. We have created these care instructions as a general guide. Be sure to follow all of the manufacturer's recommendations. These school headphone care instructions will help you get the most out of each pair of school headphones, school earbuds, or school headsets with a microphone in your classroom.
1. Do not wrap the cord around school headphones
- The cord should never be wrapped around the headphones. This could put the internal cables at risk of being damaged. Instead, roll the cord in a circle and secure it with a tie.
- Keep your headphones in good shape by putting them in the pouch that comes with them. If your headphone does not come with a bag, consider getting a durable storage bag for each one.
- There are cable wraps available online that work well, but they are easy to lose, so keep that in mind if you go this way.
- It is always a good idea to teach students about the importance of being careful with the cord and connector. Those are usually the first thing to get damaged.
2. Cleaning School Headphones
- Clean the headset with a damp disinfectant cloth.
- Never spray liquid directly onto the headphone or submerge it in water or a liquid.
- Water and liquid damage are not covered by the manufacturers warranty.

3. Choose headphones that are suited for your child's age.
- School children under the age of three should not use headphones or earbuds since they may contain tiny pieces. For students ages 4 and up, we support the use of school headphones. In our experience, earbuds don't always fit perfectly for younger students. They're also more prone to damaging cords and connectors by accident.
- For 5th grade students and up, both school earbuds and school headphones are suggested. If you have any questions about which model is best for you, our team is here to assist you. For particular school headphone recommendations, please contact us.
- Keep your school headphones in a safe place. We understand that this one appears to be self-evident. However, it's never a bad idea to educate kids about the necessity of properly caring for their school headphones. Shortages can be aggravating and difficult to deal with.
- To learn more, we contacted some teachers for suggestions on how to make it more enjoyable. Several of the teachers we spoke with chose to create innovative games and engaging activities in which they would create and devise a list of important elements for students to remember when using and wearing school headphones.

School Headphone Storage
- When headphones are not in use, hard cases are the most robust alternative for keeping them organized and preventing accidental damage. They are simple to store and move, and an optional lock can be added for added security. The most popular cases are hard cases, which provide the most protection and may be stacked, making them ideal for bigger learning locations and settings.
- Soft cases keep all of your headphones in one place and organized. They make it simpler to store and move materials from one class to the next. We offer a wide range of cases in stock. Repurposing an old backpack with plastic storage bags is another simple alternative. This is a good strategy to cut down on the number of occurrences of accidental loss and damage. When school headphones and school headsets are not in use, keeping them tidy and carefully stowed goes a long way toward ensuring that you get the most out of each pair.
- When not in use, we also recommend keeping each pair of school headphones, earbuds, and school headset with a mic in a plastic bag, as previously mentioned. To avoid unintentional damage and breakage,, proper storage is essential. They can also help to prevent lice from spreading. Lice cannot survive for more than two days without the head. For two days, keep the school headphones in a bag. They will perish if they have lice on them. To protect from a lice infestation, consider using labels on the bag that state "do not use until (date)." This will ensure that no one uses them until the specified period has passed.
- Making a list of your specific best practices and sharing it with students on this subject before the first use can assist to reduce lice exposure from another student using the same headphones.
- Encourage students to look after all of the school headphones on a regular basis. Consider devising an engaging activity that will entice students to participate. Create your own best practices with your students that are unique to your classroom, library, computer lab, or learning environment.
Following these instructions will ensure that you get the most out of each pair of school headphones, earbuds, or headsets with microphones. We recognize the need of stretching your school's budget.
We hope that these guidelines will serve as a starting point for school headphone care in your classroom. Student headphones can improve the learning environment, which is critical. We hope that following these recommendations will help you extend the life of your school headphones.
